I’m overthinking this triathlon thing. Jesus. It’s only 250 yds in the pool, an 8 mile bike ride, and a 2 mile run. For the next ten weeks, I’m going to the track every other day. I’ll meander around it 8 times, and each time try to do it faster than the time before. On the days I’m not at the track, I’ll hop on my kick ass beach cruiser and ride 4 miles from home. Then I’ll ride four miles back. Each time I’ll try to do it a little faster. And after the kids leave every day, (M-Th anyway) I’ll head to the *pool and swim 10 lengths. Each time, I’ll try to do a little better and get a little faster. It’s not a fucking ironman. I can do this. Without stressing out about it.
*the pool doesn’t open until June 4. Damn college.
Today, my neck, shoulder, and back of my head got really stiff and sore and my head hurts like crazy. It’s the weirdest pain I’ve ever experienced. My sister (who is a nurse) of course jumps to the worst possible assumption immediately. She thinks I have meningitis. No fever though. I promised to go to the hospital if I spiked one. I took 4 advil and I’m starting to move a little better. I have one muscle relaxer left and I’ll take it tonight in hopes that I just sat in one weird position too long today. Hopefully, I won’t spike a fever. I work with kids. I don’t have time for meningitis.
If you were so opposed to a school bond that raised your taxes 100/yr so your kids don’t have to go to school in a building that’s been condemned (yes, they still use the building and yes, my 71 year old mother went to that school in that building), then maybe you should’ve brought forth a public outcry before the election. Bitching about it now does nothing. Bitching about 100/yr when you’re usually bitching about the overtime you’re getting or checking into Starbucks three times a week on FB makes me less sympathetic to your opposition.
